    In that case you have a long manual effort ahead of you. Hopefully you are doing this upgrade on a cloned machine instead of the productions server.

    If you are on a clone machine then you can re-clone the original machine and attempt the upgrade operation again from the link I previously provided doing them in increments.

    If you are on the production machine then I would go with the plan to backup the tables, remove the original software, install the new version of the software then attempt to append the old data into the new tables.

    In that case you should re-clone the machine, then increment through the upgrades from 4.3->4.4->4.5 and test for errors between each upgrade all on the clone while documenting your work.

    In this case an international call is justified because you will need to contact the company that sells this product to ask for the 4.4 upgrade scripts, 4.4 installation files or instructions on upgrading from 4.3 to 4.5, you cannot be expected to perform an upgrade on undocumented software As long as it is your job to resolve these issues you must be allowed to use whatever resources are necessary to obtain resolution, if you are a contractor working on this job then you might want to do the call on your personal phone and east the cost personally.

    The first information you probably need to solve your issue is that eZ Publish 4.4, mandatory intermediate step when upgrading from 4.3 to 4.5 (as shown in the upgrade doc : http://doc.ez.no/eZ-Publish/Upgrading ), is available here :

    Secondly, eZ Publish is available in two flavors :
    [li]eZ Publish Community Project, openly available, cutting-edge version, where both the editor and the eZ Publish Community are contributing. The latest version is available here : http://share.ez.no/download-develop/downloads/ez-publish-community-project-4.2011 [/li]
    [li]eZ Publish Enterprise Edition, available through a paying subcription. More information here : http://ez.no/eZPublish/eZ-Publish-Enterprise-Subscription [/li]
    I encourage you to visit http://share.ez.no, the eZ Publish Community website, where the very active forums will help you get a solution to your problem, pretty quickly.

    Cheers !
  • Hi
    Thankx for reply

    i didnt understand following steps
    1)eZ Components:
    Enterprise edition includes a version of eZ Components that is tested and certified
    with this version of eZ Publish-

    The community edition requires the latest stable release of eZ Components.
    To install this, you also need PEAR
    See http://ez.no/ezcomponents for more information

    2)Step 1: Upgrading the distribution files

    The easiest way to upgrade the distribution files is to unpack eZ Publish 4.4 to a separate directory and then copy the directories that contain site-specific files from the existing installation. Make sure that you copy the following directories:

  • here my new folder is ezpublish-4.4.0-gpl
    old folder is UNIVADIS_CMS

    can u tell me from where to where i will copy my data in 2) point
  • In which file , i do following modifications :

    Step 2: Custom extensions

    If you are using custom extensions, the sub-directories inside the "extension" directory will also have to be copied. However, make sure that you do not overwrite any extensions that are included in eZ Publish, which currently are eZ Online Editor (5.x), eZ OpenOffice.org (2.x) and eZ JSCore (1.x). Note that upgrading the distribution files will overwrite the autoload arrays for extensions. You will need to re-generate the autoload arrays for active extensions later.

    See the dedicated upgrade instructions for eZ Flow and Website Interface below.

    The updated versions of eZ Flow and Website Interface will also install the following extensions:

    eZ Website Toolbar
    eZ Star Rating
    eZ Google Maps Location

    For eZ OE 5.x and eZ JS Core you will need to replace the following rewrite rules when using Virtual Hosts:

    RewriteRule ^/var/cache/texttoimage/.* - [L]
    RewriteRule ^/var/[^/]+/cache/(texttoimage|public)/.* - [L]


    RewriteRule ^/var/([^/]+/)?cache/(texttoimage|public)/.* - [L]

    For more detailed instructions, see the dedicated eZ OE and eZ JS Core doc pages.
    Note: Both admin2 design and webin (ezwebin extension) requires ezjscore extension to be enabled, look here for how to enabling extensions.

    After doing all the steps in this link

    how to access site ?
  • i copy .htaccess_root file to .htaccess

    i try to access site using following URL

    But get following error

    Access denied!

    * You do not have permission to access <oscar_admin>.
    * Please contact the site administrator.
  • What to do in this step ?

    Step 3: Upgrading the database

    The update script for the database is located in

    <eZ Publish root>/update/database/<mysql|postgresql>/4.4/dbupdate-4.3.0-to-4.4.0.sql

    You can run this with the appropriate command line tool or application.

    For eZ OE 5.x and eZ JS Core you will need to replace the following rewrite rules when using Virtual Hosts:
